Come Worship with Us and Know the Love of Christ!


Springdale’s Church Day Out event is held yearly during the summer, alternating a one-day local event at Sherando Lake with a weekend event at Highland Retreat in Bergton, Virginia.

The one-day events are held at the William Branch Group Picnic Area at Sherando Lake, and include a worship service, lunch, and an afternoon of fellowship, swimming, canoeing, and games.  Participants are invited to camp (on their own) at Sherando that weekend if desired.

Weekend events at Highland Retreat include relaxation,worship, fellowship and fun (biking, swimming, softball, volleyball, basketball, eating, hiking, games, conversation, corn hole and wading in the creek.) Sleeping facilities range from hotel-like rooms in the Conference Center to sleeping bags under the stars.  There are cabins with bunks, as well as campsites.  


The Sunday morning worship services at these events are informal, and often include baptisms of young people and communion.

Church Day Out 2020 was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We hope to meet in 2021 at Sherando Lake!  

Located in northwest Virginia, Highland Retreat is a 40-minute drive from Harrisonburg and about 64 miles from Waynesboro!
